General Election 2010 The General election is going be held

on the 6th of May 2010. There are three main political parties in the election they are: The Conservative Party, The Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats.

The 3 candidates - left to right

Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Nick Clegg

The Current political party in power are the Labour party led by Gordon Brown. The labour party have been in power for 12 and half years since 1997 under both Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. The Labour Party’s main opposition is the Conservative Party, led by David Cameron. The Conservatives have been in power 25 times since 1721and are the favourites to win the upcoming election, leading all opinion polls. However, for the first time in many years, the Liberal Democrats, lead by Nick Clegg, have received much more popularity than usual and are second in the opinion polls, after the Conservatives and before Labour. This could be an interesting election because for the first time, all parties have a chance of winning.

BLOGGING OK, so it’s a funny word — but what is puberty, anyway? Puberty (say: pyoo-ber-tee) is the name for the time when your body begins to develop and change as you move from kid to adult. We’re talking about stuff like girls developing breasts and boys starting to look more like men. During puberty, your body will grow faster than at any other time in your life, except for when you were a baby. It helps to know about the changes that puberty causes before they happen. That way, you know what to expect. It’s also important to remember that everybody goes through these changes. No matter where you live, whether you’re a boy or a girl, whether you like vanilla or double-fudge-chunk ice cream, you will experience them. No two people are exactly alike, but one thing everyone has in common is that we all go through puberty. It’s Just a Growth Spurt A spurt is a short burst of activity or something that happens in a hurry. And a growth spurt is just that: Your body is growing and it’s happening really fast! When you go through puberty, it might seem like your sleeves are always getting shorter and your pants are creeping up your legs. That’s because you’re having a growth spurt that lasts for

Puberty by Chloe-Ann Booth

about 2 to 3 years. When that growth spurt is at its peak, some kids grow 4 or more inches (10 or more centimetres) in a year! At the end of your growth spurt, you’ll have reached your adult height — or just about. But your height isn’t the only thing that changes during puberty. With all this Growth, it can seem like one part of your body — your feet, for instance — are growing faster than everything else. This can make you feel clumsy or awkward. This is normal, too! The rest of your body will eventually fill out and shape up, and you’ll feel less klutzy.

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner ‘The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner’ is a new story by Stephenie Meyer. It is based around a young girl called Bree who in Eclipse is turned into a vampire and is shortly killed afterwards. In Eclipse Bree doesn’t get much of a say so Stephenie Meyer has wrote this book to show how it felt from Bree’s point of view. Stephenie Meyer had written this book way before ‘Twilight’ was even released. She was editing Eclipse at this time and was thinking a lot about the newborn vampires in the story, imagining their side of the story. This is when she decided to write a book from the perspective of Bree and how it felt to be a newborn vampire. The book is going to be released on June 5th 2010 and will be sold internationally.

Junior section - Alvin & The Chipmunks 2 Pan World News

Alvin and the chipmunks is a great

film and the funniest part is when Alvin says “Shake what your momma gave you” and when Alvin said “In your faces” I laughed my head off. The best part of the film I thought was when they were singing Flo-Rida Right Round. I found it quite funny. My favourite characters are Theodore and Alvin because they E E always do or say something funny. I like S D N all of their girlfriends: Eleanor, Janette A ! T O I G VE and Brittany they are really good singers M for chipmunks. I think they could have IL L LO F L improved it by telling us what the life of THE I W N U the chipettes was like: how they lived, E O E Y S where they lived and how theyTgot niceG! N inIN E clothes like the ones they wore V AZ the A film. U H AM

O S I Y IF T. IT I the film was fantastic apart from when Alvin left the skateboard Overall I thought

in the way and Dave fell over it and broke his leg and he was in hospital over Christmas. It was funny when they were on the phone to him and he heard a noise and said “what’s that” as Theodore dropped the cheese balls, then Alvin shouted out “CHEESEBALLS!” in a really funny way.

On the 20th of March 2010 the volcano called Eyjafjallajokull erupted and caused chaos. The first signs of the volcano erupting were floods and the smell of rotten eggs caused by the build up of sulpher.

by Jennie Peddie

The volcano has laid dormant since its last eruption in 1821.One person said this

about what was happening: “I had a bag ready because of the recent earthquakes in the area and grabbed a few things we might need for a couple of days and we went as quickly as possible,” Andrews said from a safe house yesterday. “It is a huge shock to us all and it doesn’t seem real at all.”

The floods arrived early the next morning they all saw

them coming down the mountain. Ice melted by the red hot explosive eruptions bursting through the 200m-thick glacier poured off in torrents, washing away roads and sweeping into homes.

By morning they could see through breaks in the cloud

a huge evaporation cloud, like a mushroom. They said it must have been 20,000ft [6,100 metres] high. It looked enormous, far bigger than they had ever seen before. The wind also blew volcanic ash all over the world also causing major disruption to all the main airports in the U.K.
